Memphis Depay and PSV trade tweets after Champions League draw

Memphis Depay

The Manchester United winger was drawn against his old club in Thursday's draw for the Group Stages - cue friendly banter.

New Manchester United signing Memphis Depay unsurprisingly took to Twitter to get in touch with his childhood club PSV Eindhoven, after the two clubs were drawn against each other in the Champions League group stages for this summer tournament.

Memphis spent nine years at the club before his switch to Old Trafford this summer, ending his time there with a spectacular season for both player and team. The 21-year-old scored 28 goals in 40 matches as the famous Dutch side won their first league title since 2008.

The Netherlands international seemed happy to have drawn his former side, who will be competing in Europe's elite competition for the first time in several seasons.

It was a sentiment echoed by the official PSV account, who said the forward was always welcome back at the Phillips Stadion, only to send a little warning his and Manchester United's way by mentioning that the English club had never won away to the Dutch champions.

Overall, Memphis and his new side will likely be happy with the teams United drew in their own return to the Champions League, with PSV arguably the weakest of the Pot 1 sides, although CSKA Moscow, and especially Wolfsburg, could prove capable opponents.
